TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi dismissed recent allegations leveled by the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) against Tehran’s nuclear program, as “absurd”.

In remarks released on Sunday night, Araqchi denounced recent MKO allegations that Iran is violating its nuclear deal with six world powers as “absurd and a repetition of a failed scenario whose invalidity has previously been proved by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).”

He further warned the new US administration not to be misled by the efforts made by the anti-Iran terror group and their regional supporters to spread Iranophobia, saying that previous US administrations have repeatedly taken the path and suffered every time they trusted the notorious group.

He made the remarks in response to recent MKO allegations that Iran is violating the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by “secretly conducting research into nuclear weapons components” at the Parchin military site in Iran.

Earlier on April 15, US Senator John McCain met with the MKO members in Albania, talking about his opposition to the Islamic Republic and pledging continued support for the group.

The MKO – listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community – fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq and was given a camp by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

They fought on the side of Saddam during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-88). They were also involved in the bloody repression of Shiite Muslims in southern Iraq in 1991 and the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.

The notorious group is also responsible for killing thousands of Iranian civilians and officials after the victory of the Islamic revolution in 1979.

More than 17,000 Iranians, many of them civilians, have been killed at the hands of the MKO in different acts of terrorism including bombings in public places, and targeted killings.
